At present Shiv Sena's Rahul Shewale represents this seat.
"I have decided to contest from this constituency. If BJP and Sena form alliance, then I will appeal to (Sena chief) Uddhav Thackeray to leave the south-central to the RPI (A). If there is no alliance, then I do not think the BJP will have any issue supporting my candidature from there," he said.
